Desert City Soundtrack

On Perfect Addiction, Desert City Soundtrack continue to hone a sound with surprising flourishes and a refreshing lack of mainstream mongering. With Cory Gray's oft-gelid ivory still at the fore, Perfect Addiction lessens the aural anguish prominent on 2003's Funeral Car. Other than the feedbacked furor and the muscular pulse of Brian Wright's drums ending No Signal, much of the CD's twelve tracks sigh with a brooding air. However, under words conjuring deathly imagery, crippling dependencies and an overall inability to cope, the hectoring ghosts of Desert City Soundtrack's past aren't completely forgotten. Playing The Martyr strikes a worthy balance between lilt and haste. A song like the stormy, seafaring Whatever The Cost contrasts sonically and emotionally with a frail composition like First Sickness. This Portland trio can migrate from the simple balladry of Last Night's Floor to a suspensefully abrasive string session like Good Times Without. Like a Sundance film dealing with mortality and everyday ennui that's produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, Desert City Soundtrack maintain their mastery of sad sonancy by loudly dealing with inner demons that refuse to die. It's a disquieting journey that's ultimately good for the soul. - Journal Review Desert City Soundtrack are Cory Gray (Vocals, Piano, Bass, Trumpet), Matt Carrillo (Vocals, Guitar), Brian Wright (Drums, Percussion, Organ).The band resides in Portland, Oregon. ------------ ( Although I personally like all of their releases, I still think "Perfect Addiction" would be one brilliant start. ) ------------ desert-city-soundtrack-funeral-car Artist - Desert City Soundtrack Album - Funeral Car Release Date - 2003 Genre - Piano base Indie-rock, Alternative Tracklist 01 My Hell 02 Drowning Horses 03 Drawn and Quartered 04 Dying Dawn 05 Take You Under 06 These Games We Play 07 Second Sickness 08 Fields Landing 09 Casket 10 Something About a Ghost 11 Traction and Temperature 12 Westpoint Desert City Soundtrack - Funeral Car Password - SirensSound.blogspot.com ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- desert-city-soundtrack-perfect-addiction Artist - Desert City Soundtrack Album - Perfect Addiction ( * * * * * ) Release Date - 2005 Genre - Piano base Indie-rock, Alternative Tracklist 01 Last Night's Floor 02 Let's Throw Knives 03 Playing the Martyr 04 No Signal 05 Whatever the Cost 06 Batteries 07 First Sickness 08 Mothball Fleet (Counterattack) 09 Good Times Without 10 It's Not That Bad 11 Watering Hole 12 The Dining Dead Desert City Soundtrack - Perfect Addiction Password - SirensSound.blogspot.com ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- desert-city-soundtrack-contents-of-distraction Artist - Desert City Soundtrack Album - Contents of Distraction Release Date - 2002 Genre - Piano base Indie-rock, Alternative Tracklist 1 What to Do in Case of Fire 3:40 2 Widow's Staircase 4:35 3 Sleeperhold 4:35 4 Murder Hearts 6:20 5 Cardboard Hill 5:14 6 Foglifter 4:28 7 Untitled 1:17 Desert City Soundtrack - Contents of Distraction Password - SirensSound.blogspot.com ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- desert-city-soundtrack-settlefish-sounds-like-violence-split Artist - Desert City Soundtrack / Settlefish / Sounds Like Violence Album - Split Release Date - 2004 Genre - Piano base Indie-rock, Alternative Tracklist 1 Sounds Like Violence - I Push You Up the Stairs 2 Settlefish - Curse Loosely 3 Desert City Soundtrack - Send Your Soldiers to Do Your Killing 4 Settlefish - Who Placed the Dots on Dyslexia? 5 Desert City Soundtrack - January's Loss 6 Settlefish - Glass Party Desert City Soundtrack - Split Password - SirensSound.blogspot.com ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Artist - Desert City Soundtrack Album - Home Recordings Release Date - Genre - Piano base Indie-rock, Alternative Tracklist Desert City Soundtrack - Home Recordings - Christmas Desert City Soundtrack - Home Recordings - Cliches Desert City Soundtrack - Home Recordings - Collapse Desert City Soundtrack - Home Recordings - Covered (In) Security Desert City Soundtrack - Home Recordings - Despite All Previous Attempts Desert City Soundtrack - Home Recordings - Devilwings Desert City Soundtrack - Home Recordings - Homeless Desert City Soundtrack - Home Recordings - Life Is Fading Desert City Soundtrack - Home Recordings - May Or Never Desert City Soundtrack - Home Recordings - My Desing Desert City Soundtrack - Home Recordings - Oncelifted Desert City Soundtrack - Home Recordings - Supernovas Desert City Soundtrack - Home Recordings - Thermostat Desert City Soundtrack-Home Recordings-Washed Up Desert City Soundtrack - Home Recordings Password - SirensSound.blogspot.com ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Recommendations: Mimas - The Worries The Low Frequency in Stereo KEjNU The Observatory Camera 237 - Inspiration Is Not Here ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Thanks ROBB23 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Review for 52 by Orellana

Orellana is a neo-classical/post-rock collective hailing from Bristol, UK. Their new album “52”, released in late December, brought in the new year with it’s explosive and intricate sound. The project’s music transcends genre definitions in order to focus on a broad, diverse concept that is more emotional than tangible. This particular release is full of rich and diverse arrangements, but it is also a powerful exercise in minimalism, one that showcases the strength of very few notes placed in the right spots. The simplicity of the arrangement is actually one of the strongest aspects of this entire release: there’s a palpable stillness created by the long, drone notes in the background, which almost makes you feel like the world is happening in slow motion. When the chords and notes change, it feels quite monumental due to the beautiful contrast between the stillness of the background textures and the expressive sound of the guitar-based melodies.
